Trivia

This movie's MacGuffin are some stolen papers, documents, plans and ledgers which are owned by Abner Procane played by John Houseman. Interestingly, a few years before this movie was made, Houseman appeared in the The Paper Chase (1973) in which he won the Best Actor in a Supporting Role Academy Award Oscar. Charles Bronson's mission in this picture is to recover these papers, his charge being a kind of "paper chase" in a sense. See more »

Could have used more punch
7 May 2014 | by (Victoria, BC) – See all my reviews

I'm not sure why Charles Bronson chose to star in "St. Ives" during the peak period of his career, since it's far from the tough guy roles that made him famous. Maybe he liked the promised change of pace. I do admit that Bronson is fine in the title role, more of a troubleshooter and go- between instead of a violent individual. Unfortunately, he is surrounded by material that's kind of lacklustre. The movie as a whole lacks edge. I know this is more of a mystery than an action exercise, but a little more action would have sparked things up considerably. It doesn't help that director J. Lee Thompson makes the entire movie look and feel more like a made for television exercise rather than a theatrical movie. This isn't actively awful, but I would only recommend it to die hard Bronson fans.
